Have you ever painted a rain barrel? The Alma Public Library has a beautiful painted rain barrel on display. Painted by artist Betty Kendrick, the barrel is designed to attract painters for the 2015 Rain Barrel Painting Contest, sponsored by the Washburn Neighborhood Association in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The contest attracts artists of all ages and abilities. Painting the barrels is fun, and the event helps to promote water conservation!
The barrels will be auctioned off at the Washburn Garden Expo on March 21st. For more information, visit the website: www.washburnneighborhood.org.
